Near-Death Experience: Bono Avoids Disaster As Plane Door Falls Off In Flight


U2 singer Bono was travelling from Dublin to Berlin on board a Learjet 60 D-CGEO along with four friends when the plane’s door suddenly fell off during the flight.

His bandmates Larry Mullen, the Edge and Adam Clayton were not on board and Bono was travelling ahead of them in order to attend a diplomatic meeting with Gerd Mueller, the German minister of economic cooperation and development.

A source told the Irish Daily Mail that the singer was incredibly lucky to avoid a disaster.

He was extremely lucky, the plane could have gone down. About an hour into the journey they heard a big thud coming from the rear of the plane. They were startled for a bit but they continued on and made the descent into Berlin airport.

When they landed they were horrified to learn that the compartment at the rear of the plane had completely detached. The entire door along with Bono and his companions’ luggage had fallen out mid-air. They don’t know if the door and the contents landed over water or land but they were extremely lucky. They were at an altitude where anything could have happened and they are all feeling very lucky to be alive.

Authorities at the airport in Berlin confirmed that the plane had landed with a damaged tailgate.
